Yvonne DuBourdieu, ASA: This current body of work looks at the dichotomy between strength and weakness within ourselves and the unease that manifests when our vulnerabilities are laid bare through heightened uncertainty. Now, in the light of a global pandemic, when our social and cultural structures have been so deeply shaken, how do we grow, repair, rebuild? How do we redefine purpose and meaning when we are living through an ongoing state of crisis?
This work is a collaboration between Danny, Hesam and Twinkle as a result of their conversations surrounding their identities, backgrounds and how individual perspectives shape their view on this particular element of life. Water and the query of its nature has always been a fundamental aspect from which philosophy has sprung. By examining the various states that one can find water in, we are able to relate and think inwardly to the tempests and stagnation found in our day-to-day moments leading to how our cultures are shaped.
Our aim was to juxtaposition the universality of water against the backdrop of our own individual ethnic backgrounds and identities.
